Why We Love Spain
History and Culture
Spain is especially rich with history and culture and warm, friendly people. The geography is stunning—within 40 miles the Mediterranean coast and Sierra Nevada mountains fuse to yield rivers, valleys, hidden waterfall pools, beautiful little fishing towns, and the world famous remote alpine white villages. What is so cool about Andalucia is that all of this amazing beauty and rural culture is so accessible and close to the remarkable city of Granada—one of the world’s gems at the base of the incomparable Alhambra and snow-capped mountains beyond, yet just 40 minutes from the blue waters of the Mediterranean.
Go canyoning in Rio Verde, hike the Sierra Nevadas, gaze out to sea from a secluded ancient tower- grazing on local wine, cheese, ham and fruit—no tourists anywhere in sight, go kayaking along spectacular cliffs and caves on the Mediterranean, snow ski, scuba dive, weave on an ancient loom high up the slopes of the Sierra in one of dozens of charming, ancient little villages… all of these activities and more are available within 40 miles.
The sub-tropical micro climate of the area—The Costa Tropical—ensures that delicious fruit and vegetables are produced year round in Andalucia, to compliment the world renowned local olive oils, seafood, ham and chorizo. Charming outdoor markets abound and there is a very surprising diversity of restaurants! Each little village is different and just wandering through them is a delight.
A Day on Expedition in Spain
Day 2: Velazquez, Goya & Picasso: Artistic Visionaries of the Past; Madrid to Herradura
This morning we visit the famous El Prado and Reina Sofia Museums, taking in the works that we have learned about prior to our visit. We enjoy lunch while discussing and reflecting upon what we experienced at the museums. Afterwards, we take a walk through Rastro for a chance to see the marketplace and modern vendors selling their own works of art. This evening, we have a late flight out to Malaga, then transfer to La Herradura to settle into our homestay experience. Home stays are stepping stones to learning about the country and culture you are visiting. Students and individuals stay with rural Spanish families in their homes for several days or more. This unique experience not only exposes the student to a different lifestyle and culture, it allows individuals to practice and enhance their language skills and make new friends. All of our families go through a lengthy selection process and are approved by our local community contact whose enthusiasm and hospitality are truly remarkable.
